Music: The Search for Lollapalooza - Pt. 6

Ahhhhh... Almost done!

Noah & The Whale

Genre: Folk Pop

Lollapalooza Show Time: 2:30-3:15 on the Bud Light stage.

Band Profile: As a part of the recently successful British "Folk" wave, with the likes of Mumford & Sons, Noah & The Whale electrifies folk to create a unique ready-for-radio pop sound. Having just completed their third album, the band has matured from their young-roots into a more developed view of their trade. Already topping the British charts, Noah & The Whale are just waiting to break into America.

Personal Opinion: They've got a really relaxed sound that can really help them break into the charts, a tough feat in the pro-pop atmosphere of today's radio. They've got an interesting sound and have, if they keep it up, a big future ahead of them.

City & Colour

Genre: Folk Rock

Lollapalooza Show Time: 3:15-4:15 on the PlayStation stage.

Band Profile: Another name for another band by Canada's Dallas Green, who is known from his solo-work, collaborations, and the hard rocking band Alexisonfire. It makes sense how he divides his songwriting, with the heavy hitters being used in Alexisonfire, the soft solo guitar work for his namesake, and the halfway in-between for City & Colour. (Dallas = city, Green = colour, get it?)

Personal Opinion: As a Canadian myself, I am already pre-deposed to love Dallas Green's work - wherever he goes. Putting that aside, his songs speak for themselves, as all of them are classic in their own rite. I would suggest everyone check him out, and hopefully you can appreciate his talents. 

  • It's almost here! Soooo excited. Since you can watch it on youtube for free, will anyone be tuning in?
  • Coldplay or Muse? I still can't decide!
  • Deadmau5 or Foo Fighters? Ahhh!
Please let me know by leaving a comment below!


  1. Woh! They are so nice! Also between your options i would go for Muse and Foo Fighters since i'm a rocker and those are the worlds' greatest bands today.

  2. I think of heard of Noah and The Whale, but not any of their songs, but both of them ended up sounding quite nice :)

  3. didnt know about Noah and The Whale. they are quite nice.

  4. Nice songs, they sound kind of familiar.

  5. Can't say I'm very fond of Noah and the Whale but out of the Foo Fighters and Deadmau5 the Foos win easy. Plus Muse beats Coldplay hands down.


  6. Very good songs actually. Enjoyed them!

  7. Not really my genre of music, but still pleasant on the ears and I wouldn't be adverse to listening to this in the background at a party or while working or some such.

  8. It's the first time I heard of them, that's quite good

  9. Great picks! I might have to check out more of their music!

  10. Those are difficult picks to make. I guess i would go with coldplay and deadmau5 but just by a veeery narrow margin

  11. Ah man, both bands sound pretty good to me. I can't decided which one I like better.

  12. Foo Fighters!!! Noah and the Whale is not bad ^^

  13. Muse would have been my choice, they definitely have a more interesting sound. Oh and Foo fighters, no question.

  14. Great music. Thanks for the find.
